CSS Editor Hierarchical Indentation in Visual Studio 2011 Developer Preview

In my previous tip I talked about integrated color picker for CSS in  Visual Studio 2011 Developer Preview. In this tip I am going to talk about another nice and small features of CSS Editor. Now CSS Editor supports automatically hierarchical indentation.

This helps your CSS files to read better and you can organize the CSS properly.This will definitely works well with a nice web hosting.


You can enabled / disabled this features from Tools > Options, or you can launch the same using Quick Launch of Visual Studio 2011 Developer preview


Check / Uncheck “Hierarchical indentation” from  CSS Formatting setting to turn this features on / off


Hope this helps !

Cheers !
